Sypnosis from Goodreads:
Luka was only eight years old when her father, Christopher Foster, was murdered.
Christopher had been working on a cure for the Genesi Code, which has plagued the human race since the government began experimenting on human DNA in an attempt to create a genetically-advanced army.
Luka has spent the last ten years training for the military’s elite taskforce, known as Delta Force, so she can uncover the truth surrounding her father’s murder. But along the way, she uncovers a truth about herself that she is not yet ready to face.
Could the truth surrounding Luka’s past be the key to curing the Genesi and ending the war? In the end, is revenge all that matters?
I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, please note this does not affect my thoughts on this book.
This book was such a fabulous read! From the first page I was instantly engaged and I could picture everything as I read it. I don’t often read dystopian but the sypnosis instantly appealed to me and I knew I’d have lots of questions about this book and it’s characters. I instantly adored Luka, and I was cheering for her all the way! I so was hoping she’d get the answers she was seeking, we’re given an insight into her childhood, and the horror she witnessed, and Tristen’s writing I feel really echoes Luka’s feelings, so much so that I felt like I was feeling her emotions too.
We meet an array of friends and foes along the way, my favourite of them being Harvey, Luka’s dearest friend. I thought him to be such a dear, he has such great qualities and aside from Luka, he was my other favourite character. Each of the other characters brought something unique to the story, and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how the evolve even more in the next book.
There were such a pulsing rush through this book, I felt like it was definitely leading up to something brilliant and when I reached the climax I was proper amazed, even though as I think back it definitely makes a lot of sense. But the way it was written, I felt like I hit the realisation when Luka did. And I was definitely cheering for her at the last page, the book has a wicked ending and it definitely made me admire Luka all the more. Even from the start, she struck me as a character that wouldn’t quit and she is honestly so kick ass it’s awesome!
This book was definitely unique and refreshing, there’s something in it for everyone, I was laughing and gasping on edge throughout; and mark your calendars for a September 1st release date!
And that concludes my review, until next time, happy reading,
